#SurfsUp Voxbox

I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. 

I finally received another full vox box from Influenster, this time I received the #SurfsUp Voxbox. I was super excited to receive vox boxes so close together since it had been over six months since the last time I had received one.

I must say that I was a little bemused with this box. It was filled with sample sizes! I get it that so many people sign up for Influenster now and that they can't send full size products to everyone, but I thought it was pretty funny that the last couple of vox boxes I have seen reviewed were full size. Hmm...

Here is what I received:

Jamba Juice Smoothie Kit
When I went to the store to purchase this, I fully expected to leave the coupons for someone else because I figured that it was going to be full of preservatives, high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes. I was so pleasantly surprised to find out that this was not the case. I chose Orange Dream Machine because Alan loves anything orangesicle so I figured he would love this too...except that the kids and I had it while he was gone at a conference as a treat...oops, sorry Alan! However, it was really really good. I added some carrot greens to it and the kids never knew the difference. I will definitely keep these in mind as a treat for the future.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Lotion
I received this after sun lotion that combines ribbons of lotion and gel that is supposed to provide 24 hours of moisturization. It smells heavenly, like coconut and papaya. However, I have yet to use it because I haven't been in the sun all that much. 

First Aid Shot Therapy
This is a FDA compliant drinkable pain relief shot. It's supposed to be used for headaches, sore muscles, back pain and hangovers. For me, this falls into the category of those energy shots/drinks. No way will I ever try this because these sorts of things scare me. 

Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish
I received this in sage rose. I actually really like the color but I hardly ever wear nail polish except on my toes and I can't do that right now because of my systemic yeast issues. I wound up actually painting my nails to test it out and Alan's reaction was "That. Is. Bright." So, I guess it will be relegated to my toes!

Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Shampoo and Conditioner
I was pleasantly surprised that this is sulphate free and I learned that Not Your Mother's haircare products are all gluten free and not tested on animals. The shampoo and conditioner are infused with coconut oil and sea kelp extract and I must say that I love these products. Surprisingly, they were my favorite out of the entire vox box. They left my hair silky and it holds curls really well whenever I use it. Probably my favorite thing about it is that I smell like the beach all day long. This is something else that I would definitely purchase in the future.

Did you receive this vox box? If so, what are your thought? If not, have you used these products before? What did you think?


  1. looks like a fun one. I like the not your mother's line.

  2. I have never used it before, but it's something I would definitely buy.

  3. The drinkable shot, is it just like taking an ibuprofen or tylenol, only as a liquid? You said it was FDA approved...just wondering. :-)

  4. Hi! I'm a little jealous of your voxbox. My last one contained...tampons. So, yeah. Who wants to blog about tampons? haha. I'm rejoining the blogosphere! I'd love if we can reconnect! :)

  5. Oh my! Too funny! Luckily I have always received ones where I will use at least one thing. I would use the tampons, but that's no fun ;-)

    Glad you're back!

  6. That looks like a great voxbox! I would have really liked that one. I love to smell like the beach! yeah, but I agree, i wouldn't do the first aid shot therapy either. I don't drink anything like that. I would have made my man be the tester, he will do anything lol


I love comments so leave me some love!
